Everyone wants community, friendship, a way to identify with what makes you you; but in this day and age, it’s hard to find that commonality, especially…if you’re gay. Take Boston for example: you have your theaters, festivals, museums, libraries, you name it. But it’s all for nothing if you can’t share any of it with no one. A community of like-minded individuals is important to have. A neighborhood that is very pro-homosexuality is essential to a good quality of living.
So if you’re a homosexual, lesbian, trans-gender or transvestite, or bisexual, try and find a place around Boston’s “South End,” known for its heavy population of homosexuals living together as a community should. Boston apartments are known for this in the area, not to mention the bars or nightclubs such as “The Alley” on 14 Pi Alley or the “Fritz Lounge” on 26 Chandler St. Even the drag queens live in luxury right at “Jacque’s Cabaret,” enjoying the lights and love and music of what makes drag so divine.
If clubs aren’t your scene and you want something more outdoor and public, you can actually enjoy the South End part of Boston even better with the premier food festival to stand above all other food festivals, the “Taste of the South End,” an event benefiting the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. Of course, you also have the greatest event to celebrate homosexuality in Massachusetts: the Boston Pride Festival and Parade.
Do research and you’ll find there’s even more out there for you and your friends to enjoy without feeling like you’re left out of the crowd or society. Your homosexuality doesn’t have to keep you in the dark. Try these areas out in Boston and appreciate who you are! Who you are is supposed to be grand and unique. Let Boston bring that all out for you.
